Ellen Thomas, who currently plays Claudette Hubbard in EastEnders, and has previously appeared in Teachers, Holby City and Doctor Who, has become a Patron of the Sickle Cell Society. Ellen says:

“I’m excited to be working with the Sickle Cell Society as a Patron. Supporting the sickle cell community is a cause close to my heart, and I’ve been a long-time supporter of the Society’s work. To me, it’s really important to raise awareness of sickle cell disorder and the specific needs of families affected by it. I’m looking forward to doing what I can for the Society and helping out where possible.”

Thank you, Ellen. We’re just as excited to have you working with us!
